My Brother Sir Knights and Ladies,
Congratulations to the 49 new Sir Knights who joined the ranks of the 4th Degree of Michigan District #1 of the Knights of Columbus at the Spring Exemplification held on March 4, 2017. The Patriotic Degree continues the work of the Order for the Church by paying particular attention to our Veterans who so often need help but are unable to find it.
I ask that everyone now focus on the future of our country and the Catholic Church. What role will you play? Going back nearly 135 years Fr. McGivney asked us to give care to widows and orphans. Attending Mass, a Veteran's funeral, teach children to say the rosary, fold a flag - - be the person who makes a difference. We need to defend our religion and family. I ask each and every one of you to take a 40 day challenge. Challenge your Assembly, consider joining the Color Corps, attend a flag retirement ceremony, a parade, Wreaths Across America, visit a VA Hospital or Center and help recruit for our parishes.
We were blessed to have Rev. Robert J. Johnson, SVD, Associate Pastor of St. Andrew Parish in Rochester, MI as our 2017 Spring Class Honoree. Thank you Fr. Bob for your missionary work and commitment to our Church and our Order.
Congratulations to new Sir Knight Dominic from Assembly #1963 for being the proud owner of a new sword as part of the drawing for new Sir Knights.
